Custom Build Back Yard Pergola

Summer is here and it's time to spend quality time outside with your friends and family. What better way to do so with a new pergola that provides a great area to BBQ and eat under the shade.

This customer in Cedar Hill knew exactly what they wanted and we were happy to make there vision come true. This was a huge cedar pergola build from the ground up starting with a new stained concrete pad.

We added custom build bench seats to provide extra seating and also put on a corrugated roof to provide so much needed shade in the hot summer days.

#1 cause of roof leaks

Fall is here and winter is near which means rain is on it's way. Once the winter rain and ice start your probable to late to prevent any leaks that will cause serious damage to the interior of your home. If I were to guess about 80% of roof leaks come from the chimney flashing.  Here is a prime example of a chimney that needed some professional help.

Old worn out chimney flashing can cause some serious issues to your home and if not taken care of will lead to rotten decking, molded insulation, and damaged drywall inside your home.

As you can see in this photo all the flashing had to be removed along with the shingle around the chimney. Once that was removed it revealed the bad rotten decking underneath.  With new deck we added some ice & water shield for extra protection in the winters and replaced all the flashing.

Now doesn't that look so much better? Never mind the looks the homeowner feels great knowing that this winter they won't have to worry about water damage to there home.

James Hardie Siding with a 10" Exposure

In Texas we celebrated when the rains came. We knew that it meant our grass would be green again, our lakes would be full, and the drought was over. What we didn't realize was that our Masonite and Wood siding was going to turn to dust!!!!

At Moore Construction Co. we have been busy helping all of those in need with replacing that siding. Every job has turned out beautifully and we had another that we wanted to share with all of our loyal followers.

 

This home located in Dallas was done with James Hardie Lap Siding. This specific look is a 10" exposure on the lap. We added a wonderful energy saving radiant barrier backer board, then wrapped the home in moisture barrier to protect that backer board, then it was on to the trim and siding! This house also had all brand new 1"x6" James Hardie Fascia placed on it to really finish out the look. Our crew took care to make sure that it was sealed and painted with the exact colors that our wonderful homeowner requested.

If you're experiencing that nasty wood rot or Masonite that's turned to dust give us a call day or night. We want to make sure your home stays beautiful for years. With the James Hardie 30year material warranty you won't have to worry about a drought, some good Texas rain, crumbling your siding.

Complete Home Exterior Makeover

Before  And  After

Before  And  After

This customer in Carrollton called in wanting an estimate to replace all the siding around there home along with new soffits and facsia.  So with a little planning and budgeting Moore Construction Co. came up with a solution to keep the project in budge and give the homeowner everything they wanted.

We started by power washing all the soffits and fascia around the property. Instead of replacement we added soffit vents around the property and painted them. This saved the homeowner thousands and they came out looking great! Then we wrapped the whole house in a moisture barrier and added a double 5" dutchlap vinyl siding.

After all the siding was installed we added some finishing touches with some new window shutters to really give this house some curb appeal.

Tired of Hail Damage to your Roof? Get the NEW Impact Resistant Shingle!

Moore Construction Co. has stepped into a cornerstone market of offering and installing the new GAF Timberline ArmorShield II Shingle.

These shingles pass UL 2218 Class 4 impact test which is the standard test that uses steel balls ranging from 1.25 inches to 2.0 inches in diameter. These steel balls are then dropped from heights of 12 to 20 feet. The impace of the steel ball simulates the impact energy of free-falling hailstones. 

 GAF Timberline Armorshield II shingles showed no evidence of cracks or ruptures on front or back immediately after passing. Compare this to a "standard" shingle, which may rupture or crack visibly on the surface after a large hail impact and the choice becomes clear.

Let's be real, we deal with serious wind in North Texas. These shingles are also warrantied by GAF for up to 130 MPH winds! That's crazy! These shingles are made to withstand so many things that the added cost may just be worth it. With some insurance companies (check with yours) the purchase of these shingles may qualify you for up to 30% off of your homeowner's insurance, so added cost be gone. These things are making your life easier and saving you money.

We've decided to share some photos of a home in The Colony, TX that we installed these GAF Timberline ArmorShield II shingles in Barkwood color on. 

GAF Lifetime Timberline ArmorShield II Shingles in Barkwood

This home also had GAF Cobra III Ridgevent installed. Effective attic ventilation is critical for a long lasting roof! 

  1. Remove excess heat and moisture to protect your roof from premature deterioration
  2. Prevent roof rot in your attic or roof deck
  3. Minimize peeling and extend the life of exterior and interior paint
  4. Limit the growth of harmful mold
  5. Safeguard your attic possessions against mildew damage
  6. Guard against ice damming in harsh winter climates
  7. Promote energy efficiency by reducing excessive heat in your attic

Every valley on the roof in this home was protected with GAF StormGuard Ice & Water Shield. This product creates a water tight seal in what is easily the most vulnerable area on your roof, at the eaves and rakes, in valleys, and around chimneys. This will keep water from pooling in these areas and causing leaks that will cost hundred of dollars to fix on the interior of your home.

All in all, what we want, at Moore Construction Company is to make sure that you're offered a quality product. One that will last, will perform to the highest standard, and one that the neighbors will envy all while trying to be as cost effective as possible. 

 

What Is The Best Wood To Use For A Fence?

There are various reasons you may choose to put a fence on your property – to increase safety, privacy, and security, build a safety corral for kids and pets, prevent unsupervised dips in the swimming pool, or to simply enhance your home’s curb appeal.

Around 400 years ago, the favorite fencing material of most residents was wood. Why wood? It is cheap and lightweight. There are various styles of wood available in the market from which you can select the most preferred material for your fence. The type of wood you choose depends on your budget, style, and weather.

Choosing the right wood:

Always consider your local weather when choosing wood for your fence. Do you live in a rainy area or a dry? Does the area you live in reach freezing temperatures or is it very hot? Determining the proper wood for the climate in the area you live in will provide you with a long-lasting fence.

It is also important to be aware of the woods susceptible to infestation. If your wood does not have a natural repellant, then insects can eat away your fence in no time.

You should also consider your budget when choosing wood. A long-lasting wood might be expensive, but it is a good buy if you are planning to live in the same home for some time. If you are planning to move in a couple of years, then it might not be worth spending much on a durable wood.

The best wood to use in a fence:

There are many types of wood available for fencing. Here are a few more popular ones along with their characteristics that will help you decide which type of wood is best for your fence.

Western Red Cedar: It is the sturdiest as well as the most long-lasting type of wood. It provides strength as well as stability that are needed for a reliable wood. The wood is easy to work with and can be made into many intricate design and style. It is naturally resistant to moisture, decay and infestation which make it the ideal choice for many homeowners.

Redwood: The wood can be used for all parts of the fence, but different grades of the wood should be used for the different parts of the fence. The panels can be created using low-grade redwood and posts should be made from clear-heart lumber grades. Redwood is insect-resistant and rot-free. To increase the longevity of the wood, it is recommended to treat it with a stain or clear finish. The wood might turn a gray color if not treated with a finish. Redwood is said to be the most expensive wood used in fencing and decks.

Cypress Wood Fence: The common fence material is usually found in Southern USA. The tan/red color wood is often used as a replacement for cedar and redwood. The wood is resistant to infestation and decay. It can be used for both – structural and ornamental parts of the fence.

White Oak: The wood is hard and tough even when exposed to harsh weather. Those who have horses prefer to build a fence out of white oak because of its strength.

Pressure treated pine: The least expensive type of wood is usually made from southern yellow pine. They are durable and moisture resistant as they are treated with chemicals that protect them from rot and insects. Pressure treated wood will usually last around 20-25 years and often come with a limited lifetime warranty. The wood comes in green color but often the color changes to gray over time.

It is recommended to ensure how the pressure treated wood has been dried before purchasing. Kiln dried wood is more durable when compared to air dried wood. The kiln dried wood comes with a KDAT stamp for guarantee.

Spruce pine: Another affordable wood for fencing, the wood will display a gleaming white color after construction. Although it is not as durable as cedar, it is recommended to treat the wood with an oil-based finish to prevent cracking, infestation and decay. It is also advisable to install the fence a few inches above the ground level to protect it from ground damage. Life expectancy of spruce pine is 8-10 years.

Selecting a Grade:

The grade of a wood comprises of construction, clear, select, or premium grade wood. The most expensive choice is a premium or a clear grade wood which adds durability as well as gives a uniform appearance to your fence. Select and construction grade woods are inexpensive and good quality but sometimes the wood comes with minor flaw.

Tips:

Make sure that you treat your wood with a weather proof solution which also contains UV protection that helps maintain the natural color of the wood. Clean your fence and refinish it every other year to maintain its look.

Always try to get pressure treated wood for your fence. The chemicals are already forced into the wood which makes them more durable and helps prevent wood from rotting and infestation.

Always remember that any type of wood you choose, it will warp and crack over time. No matter how much effort you put into it. Nothing lasts forever. By choosing the right type of wood and getting it installed properly will increase its life expectancy and the best outlook for your home.

Flat Roof Repair

Flat roofs always seem to cause more problems then a sloped roof for the main reason that the water doesn't run off. For this reason the water ponds and eventually finds its way into your home. It can cause serous damage to your decking, structure, and interior of your home if your flat roof ponds or leaks. So, its real imperative to have your flat roof inspected once a year by a professional to make sure you don't have any problems in the future. In this case our  Denton homeowner decided to replace his flat roof before it started to leak into the house, but as you can see once we tore off the old roof he had lots of decking a structural damage under the old roof. Once we replaced the decking and brought the structure back to code, we laid down a heavy rubber base  membrane sheet. The base sheet provides protection and give the top sheet some thing to adhere to. This peel and stick application works and looks great cause it seal itself and the top sheet comes in a variety of colors to match your existing roof.

Giving Back TO Our Environment & Communnity

Environmentally Conscious Waste Management

 

One of our proudest achievements at Moore Construction Co. recently is implementing a solid environmentally friendly approach to construction and waste management.   With all the construction happening in Dallas/Ft. Worth every day, you can imagine how much trash is made and taken to the landfills.  Contractors and companies are replacing roofs, building fences, siding, remodeling homes, building gazeebos, car ports, patios, painting, flooring, and much more every single day in the metropolis.  The demolition of old jobs to create new jobs means tons of used materials which are just discarded and hauled off to landfills.  Some of these materials are actually in very good condition and can be upcycled, because not everything should be buried into our Earth. 

We have the ability to save so much used wood or metal and then donate these materials to families in need, Habitat for Humanity, or sustainable communities.  These recycled materials will in turn be transformed into beautiful structures to live in, or to help repair existing homes.  What we have found most useful are the used eight foot panel sections of fencing, old heavy cedar beams, R-Panel or aluminum carport covers, insulation boards, extra bricks, flooring, and any other extra wood from jobs.

United States Waste Facts:

·         Out of over 8 billion species of life on Earth, humans are the ONLY species who creates waste.

·         Every year nearly 900,000,000 trees are cut down worldwide to provide raw materials for American paper and pulp mills.  That’s over 2 million trees cut down every day!  That’s over 100,000 per hour! That’s 1,700 trees cut down PER SECOND! 

·         Americans use 50 million tons of paper annually – consuming more than 850 million trees.

·         Every ton of recycled office paper saves 380 gallons of oil.

·         Every day the United States generates 200 million tons of trash, or 4.3 pounds per person.

·         Americans make more than 200 million tons of garbage each year, enough to fill Bush Stadium from top to bottom twice a day!

·         Greenhouse gases are generated by waste decomposing in landfills, and typically contribute around 10% of a household’s total emissions.

·         Every year we generate around 14 million tons of food waste which is 106 pounds of food waste per person.   The typical household throws out 10-15% of the food it purchases.  570,000 tons of this is composted for a 4.1% recovery rate. The rest, or 13.4 million tons is incinerated or landfilled and occupies 6.3 million cubic yards of land.

·         Americans throw away about 28 billion bottles and jars every year.

·          The plastic bags from the supermarket take 1,000 years to decompose.  At least four billion plastic bags a year ends up as litter in the US out of the 100 billion used. 

·         Energy saved from one recycled aluminum can will operate a TV set for three hours, and is the equivalent to half a can of gasoline.

·         About 1% of US landfill space is full of disposable diapers, which take 500 years to decompose.

·         Americans produce enough Styrofoam cups every year to circle the earth 436 times.  Each year Americans throw away 25,000,000,000 Styrofoam cups.   Even 500 years from now, the foam coffee cup you used this morning will be sitting in a landfill.  These cups are completely non-biodegradable, deplete the Earth’s ozone layer, waste enormous amounts of landfill, and are deadly to marine life.

·         If just 25% of American families used 10 fewer plastic bags a month, it would save over 2.5 billion bags a year.

The implications of these facts show a disturbing reality about the lack of responsibility we as a species have failed to embody.  Rainforests have been depleted, our oceans polluted, and our precious lands filled with waste.   The system we have been addicted to is destroying our planet, and our continued irresponsible consumption will only add fuel to the fires of destruction.  We as individuals must take responsibility for the mess we have created and change our ways. The time to act is NOW.  This is a grand opportunity to not only be exposed to the leading edge of sustainability consciousness, but also to BE a part of it through our conscious communion with Earth. 

The real juice of sustainability is all about ACTION.  This initiative will be a platform to share the potential reality of enhanced longevity and abundance for our self and all of life on earth.  Moore Construction Co. is a proud sponsor of sustainable communities including The Garden of Eden in Arlington, Tx. This small sustainable community is founded and led by fearless warrior Quinn Eaker, who is a shining example of human potential, living a truly thriving existence and leading by his example. His community is living the New Paradigm dream and teaching the world how to live a life of total fulfillment beyond our wildest imaginings, and they do it all without working a “day job”. They don’t receive a paycheck, they don’t pay taxes, they don’t answer to “the man”, and they don’t have debts or loans.. They have completely UN-GRIPPED from the system.. Yet they are thriving in abundance greater than the wealthiest billionaires on the planet. 

WHY?  Because they are radically and sustainably FREE.

This Eco-village has been building onto their property with used materials which are donated by friends of the community like Moore Construction Co.   We believe that in order to have a well-balanced eco-sphere, we must limit our material consumption as a company and recycle ALL usable materials.   As we get numerous calls for replacing new construction on a home, there are often times where the old materials can still be used, and even still look good!  Whenever we have a new job to build, we consult with the homeowner about donating their old fence, siding, windows, doors, or other wood installations.  As soon as our job is complete, we haul off the old materials directly to a family in need or a sustainable community who upcycles and rebuilds only with used materials.  These materials are not trash, to this community, this is a gold mine and they are happy to receive!  We encourage you to join the sustainable revolution by choosing Moore Construction Co. as the best environmentally friendly option for your home construction needs.

A note from Quinn Eaker on sustainability:

“In true sustainability, one is in harmony with life. One realizes that sustainability is not about a technology or special material.  It is about a state of consciousness, a relationship WITH life. It is about a conscious priority on living so that our environment is richer, healthier and MORE abundant because of our existence rather than depleted, consumed, and objectified by us.

Responsibility is an essential aspect of sustainability. This is a very dark truth when one considers being truly and fully responsible for all the unsustainable practices that one is typically a party to or a sponsor of in even a single day in an average western life.

The evidence speaks for itself. There are more overweight people in the world than ever in recorded history, there are more people with cancer than ever in recorded history, there are more people in jail… there are 1.6 acres of precious ancient forest being destroyed every second with countless aspects of biodiversity lost, potentially forever.

Yet, from a New Paradigm perspective, “problems” are simply opportunities for solutions. Those solutions exist now, and the purpose of our combined initiation is to share and bring together sentient beings deliberately attending to BEING the solution.

Moore Construction Co. is a key role player on the leading edge of this sustainable revolution.

We achieve this experientially through our committed service to a better world, with effective communication, and with the gathering of used materials across the metropolis to recycle and put to good use in the community. 

This moment is an opportunity for us to come together with a clear and powerful intention of raising our standards and upgrading sustainable norms/routines/habits and make a choice to begin supporting the already available solutions to all the world’s problems.

WE are the power! All the technology, resources, and people needed to activate a truly sustainable life exist right NOW. We must realize this and choose this from a place of empowered responsibility. When the revelation occurs that there is more than enough of everything, that life IS abundance overflowing, the sustainable revolution will be a naturally inspired result/outcome.

The time to activate the solution IS now, and we are all capable and we are saying “YES” to an abundant life of sustainable living where our life is healthier and more awesome each day, as are the lives of those around us.”

How to choose a reputable contractor

As your local reputable contractors, it is our duty to give you important information that will guide you in this task of choosing the best routes to take for your home remodeling or new construction project.  It can be quite a hassle assessing the full scope of your home repairs, finding a good company, and dealing with your insurance company.  Here at Moore Construction, we would like to provide you with a few pointers you may want to consider while approaching this project and choosing a proven company who will ensure that you are treated right.   We have put a checklist together to help out. 

8 vital questions to consider before choosing your contractor:

1              Where is this company from?  Do they have an office here in Dallas/Ft. Worth you can physically walk into?  Has your prospective contractor just come into town for a recent hail storm?   With an office in the metropolis, you can rest assured this company is local, and can BACK their warranty once the job is complete.  

2              Does this company offer an extended warranty of at least five years?  What happens a month or a year from the date of construction and you get a leak which damages your interior?  Can you count on this company to be there when you call after the work has been completed?  A local company who is reputable will most certainly be there to back their warranty and uphold their longstanding good name. 

3              Is this company accredited with the Better Business Bureau?  If so, what is their rating on the BBB website?  Do they have any complaints un-resolved?   A + Rating and Gold Star Award are the highest ratings you can get with the BBB.

4              Is this company licensed, insured, and bonded?   The home improvement license will give this company authority to build construction jobs in the metropolis legally.  Their insurance and bond will protect you from any unforeseen circumstances during your home repairs and roof replacement, and you will not be liable for any losses incurred during the time.

5              Can your contractor provide you MULTIPLE local references, with phone numbers?  Another sure way to determine a reputable local company is by what your neighbors have to say about them.   Don’t be afraid to ask for some references so you can call or drive by and check their previous work. 

6              What kind of quality will this company offer you?   Using only the highest quality materials means the best protection around your home for you and your family.

7              Are they asking for money upfront?  Do they have good credit and bank accounts to cover your material costs upfront?  Beware of paying before the job is complete.  There have been a number of homeowners in the area who have been duped into signing a deposit check away, never to hear from the fraudulent contractor again.  Usually this is done by out-of-towners. 

8              Finally, will your contractor be readily accessible during the ENTIRE project?  Your contractor is your liaison between you and the company you choose.  He should be there throughout the entire building process from start to finish, supervising and ensuring your project is managed with the highest level of care and dependability. 

No one looks forward to disaster striking.  At Moore Construction Co., we are here to help your rebuild process run as smooth as possible for you and your family.  With our storm repair specialists, solid warranties, and competitive pricing, you can rest assured that your home will be restored and protected with the greatest precision at the best value for years to come.

Moore Construction has been a proven leader in the residential construction business since 1996.  We are a trusted local company with thousands of customers over the Dallas and Ft. Worth metropolis.  Here are a number of attributes that sets us apart from all competitors:

Horizontal Cedar Fence

This Carrollton homeowner wanted a modern looking fence instead of your traditional vertical style, so we suggested a horizontal cedar fence. This project included 4 x 4 cedar post with horizontal 5 1/2" smooth cedar rails & 3" smooth cedar rails to give a nice clean modern look. We topped it off with a 1 x 6 cedar topper to frame out the fence and finished it with one sleek looking gate.

Vertical Hardie Siding Fix in Grand Prairie Texas

This homeowner needed an upgrade to his vinyl siding.  We installed vertical James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding.

Hardie siding is designed to last against cracking, rotting, hail damage, termites and many other possible problems.

We also provided painting for all installed siding and standing exterior trim.

Backyard Patio in Krum Texas

This homeowner came to Moore Construction Co. looking for a full backyard patio install. Of course we jumped at the opportunity to increase their home’s exterior and enhance it’s value.

We started by laying stamped concrete pads to give a textured / stone finish. This look is modern, minimal, and long lasting. The stones accentuate the house’s exterior siding and were installed to match the color.

For shade from that hot Texas sun we built a roof over the patio area and installed soffits and fascia into the roof work.

Hardie Siding Install in McKinney Texas

For this homeowner durability was a major concern. The Vinyl Siding on one side of the home kept blowing off during inclement weather.  Again, we suggested the heavy-duty and reliable Hardie Fiber Cement Siding- an compressed composite board- to get the job done.

This job was a bit tricky because we had to match the vinyl siding from the back of the house to the Hardie install on the side.  It can be a challenge to match the thickness and height of different materials - we had to individually custom cut each Hardie plank to match the vinyl segment it would marry up to.  

When the project was completed all exposure lines matched up well.  The Hardie and Vinyl made a perfect match!

The homeowner wanted to upgrade their exterior with look and durability.  We installed horizontal James Hardie boards above a brick foundation.

James Hardie fiber cement siding protects from rot and termites.  Also, it holds on to color 3-4 times as long as wood.  We prefer Hardi siding as one of our premier siding choices.


The oversized vertical planks sitting atop the original brick foundation provides an inviting touch to this cozy bungalow.
